A jury has found a former employee at an Ottawa propane business guilty of theft. The Putnam County Sentinel reports the verdict in Christine Wilson’s case came down on the third day of the trial. Prosecutors had accused Wilson of stealing more than $100,000 from Cherry’s Propane over a four year period.
Assistant Putnam County Prosecutor Todd Schroeder said Wilson would pocket cash payments and then remove records of the sale to cover her tracks. She was also convicted on a count of tampering with records.
Sentencing will happen in four to six weeks. Wilson has served time in a federal prison for committing a similar crime when she worked at a McComb bank in 2000.
